Why would a 96 Grand jeep Cherokee start thumping when accelerating and decelerating what could this be from?

If it thumps each time you accelerate and again when you decelerate or when it shifts, it could be broken motor mount(s). I agree with the motor mounts OR do you mean the thumping you hear/feel when you have a tire that is out of round, broken tire belting or the wheel weight has fallen off? If this is the case take your jeep to a tire center and have them drive the jeep to check out what they say.
